New Mutants (Maisie Williams / Anya Taylor-Joy) (April 13, 2018)

Post by WyldeMan on 5/13/2015, 5:12 pm

EXCLUSIVE: Fox has closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to co-write and direct The New Mutants, a standalone spinoff that expands its X-Men movie universe. The series, already part of the X-Men Comics universe, introduces a new crop of mutant characters born with special powers. Boone will co-write with Knate Gwaltney. Simon Kinberg will produce with Lauren Shuler Donner.

It is not surprising that the studio would want Boone to grow into bigger things. He came out of nowhere to direct The Fault In Our Stars, an adaptation of the John Green novel The Fault In Our Stars. The book had a rabid youthful fan base, but Boone showed a strong feel in bringing youthful pathos to the screen, and while Shailene Woodley was already an emerging star, both Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff broke through as new stars on that film. The result was a $12 million budget Fox 2000 film that grossed $307 million worldwide. Boone became a hot director right away off that success, and among the projects he has been linked to are adaptations of the Stephen King novels The Stand and Lisey’s Story. He’s also been mentioned as one of the directors Marvel and Sony have been sweet on for the live action Spider-Man franchise reboot. Next up for him is The Vampire Chronicles at Universal, a reboot based on the Anne Rice novels that were turned into Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.  The Stand would go after, so The New Mutants is a couple years away.

Said Kinberg of the X-Men expansion with Boone: “We’re so excited to explore this new part of the X-Men universe, and so excited to do it with Josh, who is uniquely suited to tell this story about young characters.”

Fox has done well mining its X-Men franchise. Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool with Tim Miller directing, and Bryan Singer is directing X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016. James Mangold and Hugh Jackman are also doing another Wolverine installment with Hugh Jackman. Behind those is Gambit, a movie that has Channing Tatum attached to star. Those are the current X-Men priorities but it is proactive of Fox to keep new films in the pipeline and to re-engage Boone, who’s repped by CAA and attorney Gregory Slewett. Gwaltney is also CAA.

Fox’s ‘New Mutants’ May Have Already Cast Wolfsbane and Magik

Earlier today we got word that 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off New Mutants would be taking on sort of a YA, or Young Adult vibe in keeping with the younger-skewing Marvel Comics series. Now, a new rumor suggests that Fox already has a few age-appropriate cast members in mind to form the title team. Keep in mind that the movie is still in development, director Josh Boone and his writing partner are working on the script, and the film doesn’t have a confirmed release date (though Fox did stake out some untitled territory on the calendar on October 6, 2017, January 12, 2018, and July 13, 2018).

As HitFix reports, Fox’s New Mutants is looking to add the second youngest team member, Wolfsbane, and Colossus’ younger sister, Magik. Stepping into those mutant movie roles are apparently Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) respectively. Also expected to join the team is the studio’s younger version of Storm, Alexandra Shipp, who will embody the character in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27th. Cannonball, Sunspot, and Mirage are also rumored to be on the team, with James McAvoy’s Professor X expected to play a significant role.

Again, this is all unconfirmed information at this point, but the included cast members would make sense for a number of reasons. Originally appearing in 1982, the first team dubbed “The New Mutants” was comprised of Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot, and Wolfsbane, all teenage mutants studying at Professor Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. The two other names–Magik and Storm–make sense in light of Fox’s cinematic universe. Colossus has been reintroduced to new audiences thanks to his role in Deadpool and Storm will likely have some good will to earn back since she’s currently one of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen.

For the uninitiated, Wolfsbane, a.k.a. Rahne Sinclair, is a Scottish mutant who can transform fully into a wolf or another state caught somewhere between human and wolf. Though she’s in control of her powers, her feral instincts are sometimes difficult to keep at bay. Her deeply religious upbringing caused her to experience conflict, such as shame for the joy she felt during her transformations, or the discomfort around her sorceress teammate, Magik.

Magik, a.k.a. Ilyana Nikolievna Rasputin, can teleport herself and others from one location to another by stepping into a transitional dimension known as Limbo. She can teleport across time as well as through space, and eventually became the sorceress supreme of Limbo. She also wears magical armor, wields an enchanted Soulsword, and once studied magic under Ororo Munroe, a.k.a. Storm.

Rosario Dawson in Talks for ‘New Mutants’

Rosario Dawson is in talks to join the X-Men spinoff “New Mutants” for Fox and Marvel as Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

“New Mutants” is in pre-production and has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants.

Dr. Cecilia Reyes serves as a mentor for the superheroes. Her character has the ability to generate an invisible bio-field around herself.

“Split” star Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams of “Game of Thrones” are already signed up for the project with Taylor-Joy playing Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, who uses teleportation. Williams is on board as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, who can to turn into a wolf. Simon Kinberg and Karen Rosenfelt are producing.

Fox announced last month that it was dating three Marvel movies for 2018 — “New Mutants” for April 13, “Deadpool 2” for June 1, and “Dark Phoenix” for Nov. 2.

Dawson plays nurse Claire Temple nurse in Netflix’s Marvel shows, including “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and the upcoming “The Defenders.” She starred opposite Katherine Heigl in the Warner Bros. thriller “Unforgettable” and was the voice of Batgirl in “The Lego Batman Movie.”

‘X-Men: The New Mutants’ Shifts from YA-Focus to “Full-Fledged Horror Movie”
After confirming that Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy would be joining Josh Boone‘s X-Men universe spin-off The New Mutants earlier this month, we’re starting to get an idea of just how this movie is going to shape up. Clearly, inspiration is drawn from Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod‘s early 80s creation about a team of young Marvel mutants, but new information gets a little more detailed than that.

EW has the inside track on Boone’s latest project, straight from the writer-director himself. Perhaps most interesting is the tone of this project, which is apparently shifting from its earlier iteration as a YA-styled film to more of a horror focus, just one that’s set in the X-Men universe. Based on the current cast, they really could have gone either way with it: 20-year-old Williams will play Wolfsbane alongside 21-year-old Taylor-Joy as Magik. Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) is rumored for the role of Sunspot, with Rosario Dawson in negotiations to play Dr. Cecilia Reyes, “a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself,” and will act as a mentor of sorts, as THR reports. It’s still unclear whether or not James McAvoy‘s Professor X or Alexandra Shipp‘s Storm will appear, as we’ve heard conflicting reports; stay tuned.
josh-boone-new-mutants

As for Boone’s plans for The New Mutants, he said:

   We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.

Well that’d certainly be different, considering that Disney/Marvel, Sony/Marvel, 20th Century Fox/Marvel, and Warner Bros./DC have done pretty well with costumes and supervillains over the last 20 years or so.

The movie’s plot will reportedly take inspiration from artist Bill Sienkiewicz‘s 1984 run on the Marvel comic’s series, which Boone described as, “a darker and more surreal and impressionistic X-Men series than we’d ever seen before. It felt like Stephen King meets John Hughes.”

The story is expected to explore how mutants are at their most dangerous–to themselves and people around them–when their powers are new. EW’s source says this of the plot:

   “Held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves.”

If this all sounds a little off to you, Boone wants to get one thing straight:

   “You can’t have a bigger nerd or fan making this. It’s so important to me. I’m not the 12-year-old who decided to write Stephen King a letter and loved Marvel Comics anymore, but I try to hold myself accountable to that kid. Because that kid is what keeps me from becoming a Hollywood whore,” he says with a laugh. “I look back and think: Would he think this would be cool? Would he proud of me? Did I fulfill the dream we had when we were kids? So yeah, you can definitely say I’m excited.”

We’ll find out more once the film heads towards its planned July production start in advance of an April 13, 2018 release.

I guess it's just the fanboy in me but when they refuse to use the costumes it's like not even a comic book movie anymore (obviously referring to comic characters known for wearing costumes). So, what's the point of using those characters? You can argue that they can use every other aspect of their character, but would a James Bond movie feel the same if he was in jeans and a T shirt the whole time?

It's hard to get costumes right though, can't blame them. The idea of going with a horror feel to it is interesting though, it's certainly different.

The best thing in Deadpool - the costumes of Colossus and Teen Warhead. They got them right.

‘New Mutants’: Alice Braga Replaces Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes
Alice Braga has joined Fox and Marvel’s X-Men spinoff, “New Mutants,” replacing Rosario Dawson in the role of Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

Dawson was in talks last month for the role. Dr. Cecilia Reyes serves as a mentor for the superheroes and her character has the ability to generate an invisible bio-field around herself.

“New Mutants,” created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, was the first X-Men comic spinoff, launched in the early 1980s. The “New Mutants” movie is in pre-production and has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants.

Simon Kinberg and Karen Rosenfelt are producing. Fox announced in April that it was dating three Marvel movies for 2018 — “New Mutants” for April 13, “Deadpool 2” for June 1, and “Dark Phoenix” for Nov. 2.

Braga, a Brazilian actress who stars in USA’s “Queen of the South,” joins Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Blue Hunt and Henry Zaga in the movie. Taylor-Joy will play Illyana Rasputin, aka Magik; Williams will portray Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane; Heaton is playing portraying Sam Guthrie, aka Cannonball; Hunt is portraying Danielle Moonstar; and Zaga is playing Sunspot.

Don't care for Alice, she can't act.

Ironically, her Aunt plays Claire's mother.

To be honest, I'm not familiar with the New Mutants so I'm not sure if anything in that trailer was showing people's powers or not, but it just looks like any random scary movie to me. Still don't get the point of using the characters.

Same here, Tyger. I only know two of the New Mutants: Cannonball and Sunspot. I can't tell who any of them are in that trailer. I agree it just looks like some random cheesy horror movie. Had they not mentioned the word "mutants" I would have thought it could be a trailer for a SyFy movie.

New Mutants Kicks Off an X-Men Horror Trilogy
The superhero genre is evolving. In recent years, there have been tons of comic book movies hitting the big screen and, while audiences are still turning up, the genre will need to start doing some new things in order to keep it feeling fresh. That is exactly what Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) is going to do with The New Mutants, which is going to be a straight-up horror movie set within the X-Men universe. Now, he's revealed that New Mutants will be a trilogy of horror movies, all with their own unique feel.

The director spoke with IGN recently in honor of the first teaser trailer for The New Mutants arriving online. The trailer leans heavily into the horror angle. Truthfully, if the movie didn't have "mutants" in the title, people likely wouldn't even know it was an X-Men movie. Here's what Josh Boone had to say about The New Mutants trilogy and how he pitched it to Fox.

   "We brought it to Fox as a trilogy of films, really all based on that long run by Sienkiewicz, and kind of incorporates some stuff from later issues in the '80s. These are all going to be horror movies, and they're all be their own distinct kind of horror movies. This is certainly the 'rubber-reality' supernatural horror movie. The next one will be a completely different kind of horror movie. Our take was just go examine the horror genre through comic book movies and make each one its own distinct sort of horror film. Drawing from the big events that we love in the comics."

Josh Boone also revealed that there are going to be plenty of secrets about The New Mutants that won't ever be shown in a trailer. Fans are going to have to see the movie in order to find out about them. He also confirmed that the first movie, which arrives in theaters on April 13, 2018, is going to be set in the present day. The X-Men timeline is pretty messed up right now, but we know that this will more or less exist alongside Deadpool, which takes place in present day. As for what is going to influence these New Mutants horror movies? It's primarily going to be the Demon Bear storyline from the comics, and some pretty classic horror.

   "Our whole pitch for this series was based on Bill Sienkiewicz run with Chris Claremont [The New Mutants vol. 1 #18-31, 35-38], so it's very much when New Mutants became dark and surreal and more horror driven. We were incredibly inspired by the Demon Bear story which is probably the best, well-known New Mutants story. We also drew on movies like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Stephen King stuff, and even Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors."

The success that Logan and Deadpool both enjoyed have encouraged Fox to take some risks on future projects, like The New Mutants. Josh Boone couldn't reveal to IGN whether or not any familiar X-Men characters will show up in the movie, but we could be in for some surprises. Considering how big horror movies have been at the box office lately, it looks like Fox may have a potential monster hit on their hands with The New Mutants.
